The songs of Canada’s iconic Joni Mitchell have inspired us through several decades. Gibsons Public Art Gallery is celebrating her work with an invitational exhibition which will draw from the creativity of Sunshine Coast artists, musicians and poets. Using lyrics from her songs as the starting point, artists will create and present works of all kinds. More information.

JONI'S SOUL was formed with an all-star line-up in Summer 2014 to celebrate the brilliant and prolific work of Joni Mitchell. Given that contemporary interest in her music and personal history has never been so strong since her 2001 musical retirement, and the fact she's made it clear there'll be no future live performances, interest and expectation for this show is immense.

The five piece band, led by the beautiful from-the-heart vocals of Gina Foster (Eric Clapton, Sinead O’Connor) and guitarist Ronnie Johnson (Van Morrison, Bob Dylan), draw on their own emotional response to these songs to look beyond merely the faithful reproduction of the Joni Mitchell songbook and shine a light on the most soulful aspects of her words and music.

Coyote, Hejira, Edith and the Kingpin, The Hissing of Summer Lawns, River, Trouble Child, Help Me and Gina Foster’s gorgeous version of Both Sides Now - it’s through songs like these that the band explore the unique songwriting, harmonic concept and gift of performance Joni Mitchell so enduringly revealed in her iconic albums Blue, Court and Spark, Hejira, The Hissing of Summer Lawns and beyond … More information here
